We arrived early but had no problem changing our tickets. Staff is super helpful. Visits are timed. There is airport type security. We did have to stand outside and wait - it was a cold and windy day. But so worth it. The Park Rangers as usual do not disappoint.

I expected this place to be larger as I had seen it as a young child. Weather turned cooler the day we visited but still a nice venue to visit.

Most of us know the general story of this aspect of our countries' founding, but to see the displays and hear the story again where it happened from docents and Park Rangers is a must for each and every citizen.

A must visit if you are visiting Philly. Across the street from Independence Hall. Take a close up look at Americas symbol of Liberty. A great historical lesson on its construction and it's meaning. A real appreciation for what American is.

This nice area, dedicated to the fight of American’s for Independence, is the best introduction to USA history.It’s surrounded by a few historical buildings and a lot of relative museums, where the visitors can see, among other things, the Liberty Bell , the originals of the Declaration of Independence and Amendments of the USA Constitution.
